Bump Update // 31 Weeks

31 weeks

I’m 31 weeks pregnant which means the baby is about the size of a coconut. Mmmmm…Almond Joys, Pina Coladas, German Chocolate Cake, Macaroons, Coconut Cream Pie. Can you tell that I love coconut? What I wouldn’t do for any one of the above treats right now.

The baby is measuring in at about 17 inches long and weighing around 3 1/3 pounds. He/she is close to birth height but still has some pounds to pack on which means a little growth spurt is due around now. Just when I thought I couldn’t get any bigger, right?

My sleep is still fine, although I’m tired of sleeping on my left side already. I so look forward to belly sleep again. How about just comfortable rolling over from one side to the other without feeling like a turtle on its back? Yeah, that would be nice.

The baby is still extremely active. His/her movements feel so much bigger now. I can actually feel bumps and thumps on my bladder, resulting in a “have to pee” tingle feeling. My lungs are definitely over crowded since my breath is short more often than not which means my heart is working a little bit harder (so, faster heart beat). I take a while to recover after meals before I can move around comfortably. I sit back at the table with my feet up and “digest” for a good 15-20 minutes before getting up. Overall, I just move around slowly and carefully…like a snail.

Hormonally speaking, I’m not all that emotional as pregnant women are known for being. You won’t find me weeping over TV commercials or books. Instead, I’d say I’m more short tempered and easily annoyed. Don’t you wish you lived with me right now? I handle this by taking in deep breaths (often) and trying to remove myself from situations until I can regain composure. But if you press my buttons during this “cool down” period, be prepared to lose a limb or your self-respect. Back up off me while I’m making a person, alright?! Does anyone else relate to this or do I need to cool it?

With 9 weeks to go (give or take), we’re all looking forward to meeting this little coconut. I can’t believe the countdown has reached the single digits. Oh, life is crazy and life is good!

  1. Beautiful shot. I definitely wish I had taken more photos while I was pregnant. You look great and I”m glad everything is going smoothly thus far.

    • Thank you, Jordan. And that’s exactly why I’ve been documenting this pregnancy like crazy. I took maybe 3 photos of my belly with Mia on my phone. Crappy quality. I’m having fun with it this time around :)

  2. Oh you are gorgeous! What a fabulous belly you have – I’m 31 weeks too but I’m so sure that the baby simply must be bigger than the size of a coconut! however…I really want coconut now and its nearly midnight…

  3. oh, misty. this is just stunning, absolutely gorgeous. you wear the gift of pregnancy with such grace. <3 glad that you are doing well. i'm so excited to meet both of our little bundles… so soon!

  5. LOVE this photo! Is that a curtain from Ikea? If it is, I’ve had my eye on it forever!

  6. Beautiful! I remember this point in my pregnancy with…not great fondness. Haha…I hope you are coping well enough!

    • I’m definitely feeling lucky to have had such a smooth pregnancy so far (*knock on wood*). I’m enjoying the ride as best as I can, especially since there’s no knowing for sure (yet) that I will have another child. Thanks for the comment, Courteney.
